Intentions of the Holy Father for April

Ecology and Justice. That governments may foster the protection of creation and the just distribution of natural resources.
Hope for the Sick. That the Risen Lord may fill with hope the hearts of those who are being tested by pain and sickness.

I Think He Means It

Bart Stupak (D-MI) has been saying all along that he and his ten pro-Democrat colleagues will not collaborate with the expansion of Federal funding for abortion. Nor will they vote for any bill that draws Americans into further material collaboration with that monstrous evil.

Coincidentally, Bart Stupak is a former state trooper, and he kinda looks like it, doesn't he? I mention that, because even though he has also practiced law, state troopers don't strike me as the sorta cats that are given to b.s. and clowning around. You hear him talk, and that kinda comes through. When he says that he and his little caucus aren't going to let abortion expand on their watch, I think he means it.

Keep praying, Christians.

great observation.

Between the lines of your description of Stupak's straight talk, I read: "...unlike the shameful flipflop of that Nelson guy, the future former Senator from Nebraska."

I wasn't thinking that, Luce, but I should have!

hah! I really thought you were. I guess I'm still in shock over the shameful sell-out that Sen. Nelson proved to be. I had asked my readers to pray for him. Bah. I should ask them to pray even more now, he might need it!
